...in a 174-page pdf format. But it's not what you may think - the author, Gene Sharp (who died over the weekend) wanted to show how tyrants could be overthrown through nonviolent means. He studied the examples of civic resistance,from"rude gestures" to nonviolent strikes, mutinies, and even the establishment of parallel government agencies.

Then, he studied why these tactics worked, or in some cases why they didn't. The whole think is really a remarkable body of work, packed into a mere 174 pages. It's well worth a read.

Onward and upward,
